How are the files on "i18n" repository used? What is their purpose?

I mean is there any relationship to localization packages, that are managed on greasyfork separately...
Should we migrate to use your repository?

Does "our" greasyfork script have higher priority on values or does "your" i18n file win?
The files in the repository are the included localizations in the main validator script. If you're using a separate localization pack, it must include the default localizations or you won't have those checks at all. So the answer to your question is: check that whatever localization pack you're using includes the default checks for your country and let the script writer know if they're missing or not up to date

I tried a few searches - but didn't find a "features request" - hope this is correct place:

I travel for business - so I get access to a variety of areas - but looking at the "areas" tab of the WME validator - it's not always easy to decide which area I want to work on simply by the "square miles" (or km^2)....Would it be possible to add a user tag / label (or auto pull the data from the area itself?) to make this easier to manage? Here's a screenshot of what I was thinking if a user-customizable label:

Thanks,

That is not part of validator, but rather WME itself. It would be better to discuss this in the latest WME thread.

Also I am brand new so how do I get points for editing because I dont understand how I havent gotten any, can someone please explain.


Here is the report of the area using the Validator

https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=5&lat ... 071967#a25
This is actually a segment in South Carolina with the wrong state assigned to it (there used to be lots of them around); in this case, the segment can be deleted (it's not needed). However, this is not the place to discuss issues on the map found with Validator, but rather to discuss problems, and get help, with the tool itself; it would be better to post in the WME, US, or SC forum for help with editing (or in Slack, which you've already joined). As for the points, those refresh no sooner than every 24 hours (sometimes it even takes several days).

To tell, disable all scripts/extensions and it will be easy to tell :). For the most part, though, all scripts make their own tab and keep most things in there (with the sole exception of Validator, which the author has yet to change).

That check is part of the US localization the PesachZ has been maintaining. It should be pretty simple to modify the check to exclude periods that immediately follow and precede a number.

As for the checks, yes, it just is for things that could potentially be wrong; everything that is marked should be checked for correctness and fixed only if it is actually wrong.

Can't the report already be saved as an HTML file? I remember doing that before, at least you could just use the browsers save page functionality to do so

It is doing more in-depth scanning than Highlighter.

My wish list for Validator would be the following:

1 - Move it to its own tab so it is not reliant upon WME
As mentioned before, right as you posted this, Validator got updated to 1.1.18, which now puts it in its own tab! So, looks like your (and mine, and everyone elses) wish was granted
2 - Provide a quick "on/off" toggle button that kills the continual scanning, but leaves the "Run report" option on the tab and enabled... Pressing the "play" button auto-activates the script and runs a scan logging to a report as it does now.
For me it works like this. As you can see in the screenshot, the highlighting is disabled, but the run and show scan buttons are still enabled (ran a scan fine without highlighting enabled).

3 - The ability to export the report (with HTML links) to an external HTML file to allow a detailed scan to be run and saved for later in the event we get called away, browser crash, etc...
As I mentioned before, you can already save a report by using the browser save page function. Additionally, there is a "Save this report" button at the beginning and end of the report that will save it as an HTML file. Do you not have that button?

I can confirm this. Also, the scan, pause, and stop buttons do not work. Attempting to initiate a scan causes validator to disable all layers and zoom in as if it will start scanning, but it stays in that one spot and never moves. Attempting to pause or stop scan doesn't do anything (the buttons don't even change to allow you to continue scanning)

If you look at the top left (just below the yellow bar), you'll see that the Validator text is greyed out, indicating that it is turned off/not highlighting on the map. When the text is black, Validator is turned on and highlighting as you pan

WME Validator v1.1.20:
- Fixed #23 Unconfirmed road

04.06.2016 v1.1.19:
- Fixed WME Beta
- Fixed icons in segment properties
- The work is still in progress...
What browser are you using? Have you restricted the default browser settings at all (i.e. prevented web pages from being able to store data)?

jangliss wrote:So I did some further testing, and it seems if you use the following in the "header" section it kicks in for both languages, the problem is that it doesn't really match the languages later on.

With ".lng" set to both "EN" and "EN-US" it picks up both languages. That said, if you use the "en" (or "en-us") in the title, problem, or solution text, it doesn't pick it up in either platform. For example:

Either way, I think I got it working so I just need to do some tweaking, and such.
Based on just playing around with it for a little bit, this is how it seems to work. Whatever you set as the language(s) with ".lng" is what Validator looks for in "*.title", "*.problem", "*.solution", etc. so you don't need to put "*.title.en-us" (nor should you); basically, you already told validator what languages will be localized using the ".lng" property. You can look at the default Validator localizations to get a feel for how they do things (the ES.js is a good one). Hope that helps
